This summer I have really been inspired by outdoor living. It is easy to make the odd cheeky accessory to brighten up the kitchen or the patio table and bring a little bit of zing into your life. The lovely people at Love Crochet asked me if I would design a summer project which was very much ‘on trend’. I try where-ever possible to I like to design things that I am keen to use myself.
